Florida

This portfolio contains the Pomano paintings.  I lived in Pompano Beach, Florida for two years.  I created two paintings during that time and the rest came upon reflection.  It wasn’t until 1993 that I began to make a commitment to painting – I started working in series of twelve, always buying a dozen canvases at a time then feverishly attacking them until the ideas came to fruition.

I have visited Ft. Lauderdale several times since returning to Syracuse.  One day a shark swam very close to the beach and ended up as a motif in the paintings.  And that is not an atomic bomb in the sky.  It’s the Goodyear blimp.  The hanger for it was right next door to the Pompano mall so I saw it in the sky pretty much everyday (they must have more than one, right?)

All paintings are framed in maple.  Prices are marked.

Targets

I love square paintings.  And 36″ x 36″ is the perfect size.  They are substantial targets!  I created them in the summer of 1997 when I was working as a master teacher at the New York State Summer School of the Arts at Cazenovia College.

I prepared the canvases by gluing additional canvas to the surface.  I like the way the raw edges create additional texture.  I measured out the composition using a yardstick following thumbnail sketches – the finished paintings varied very little from the original concepts!

I used oil bars and oil paint favoring metallics, titanium white, mars black, and lots of color with domino borders.  They are framed in maple and are for sale for $800 each.

Messages

This series is titled Messages from the Other Voice.  I run the risk of my art students thinking I’m “EMO” with this reveal, but I experimented with automatic writing, which produced poetry that appeared as positive messages to relinquish despair (I was a “cellar dweller” living in my parents’ basement at the time).

Each painting is an illustration of said phrases.  I used one of my favorite resources to accomplish the task – a dictionary of symbols.  Puzzle forms slice the composition into thirds (and sometimes fourths) and the familiar motifs in my repertoire appear to reinforce the text – stenciled titles, playing cards, coasters, etc.

They are double framed in cherry and maple and are for sale for $675 each.

Dreamtime

I stretched these canvases myself – with a heavyweight canvas.  I added drink coasters for texture then gesso-ed them and coated them with a Martha Stewart interior latex paint called Milk White.  Borders and straight lines, as well as a cat stencil ( the same one I used in the paper collages) completed the compositions.  Oil paint and collage materials completed the paintings.

I love their airy quality.  Oh, and my friend Syracuse artist Michael Moody gave me a bundle of old Scrabble pieces and I configured the text only from those letters.  I only had about three As and an H left over, I think!  That was fun because it made using game pieces part of the game and yet I feel that each painting has a strong element of self-portrait to them, as though the words were meant to be discovered.  They really represent my personal conflicts as I approached the new millennium.  The 18″ x 36″ canvases are $500; the 30″ x 30″ ones are $675.  I framed them with pine slats nailed to the sides, gallery style.

Encaustic Crowns

I took a graduate course at Syracuse University in May 2012.  In six weeks, I created fifty paintings!  I love the briskness of the brushstrokes, the smell of the wax and the intensity of the color!  It’s all about texture too and the fact that I can easily incorporate mixed media items into the work.  My favorite thing was adding the Monopoly money as collage because I’m really into using game pieces in my work.  Playing cards, dice, and other gaming elements evoke personal connections for the viewer while still maintaining my own emotional link, which makes the work have a more universal quality.

I used clay tools to carve the images in this series of twelve crowns.  They are painted on masonite and mounted on chalkboard painted masonite and are available for $125 each..

Instead of oil paint mixed with wax, these paintings are made with oil pastels melted into the wax.  I was able to get variations in the hues using this method, which was an experiment that I enjoyed.  I photographed cows in Lafayette, NY almost twenty years ago, deciding finally to use the references to create a series of stencils to carve into the first layer of wax.  They are painted on masonite mounted on chalkboard painted masonite and are available for $125 each.

Talisman

In 2008, I created a series of paintings I called Talisman.  I used 18″ x 24″ canvases, designing them to have a chalkboard space and a square surface for oil and collage.  There are twenty-four pieces in this collection – six with black chalkboard paint on top, six with black chalkboard paint on the bottom, six with green chalk board paint on top and six with green chalkboard paint on the bottom.  Once I mapped out that construction, I gave each painting a border as well.  I used a ruler and other devices to measure out the compositions adding text in chalk that would eventually erase.

Art can be fleeting just as emotion is a kind of journey with turns and changes along the way.  Everything changes.

These paintings are for sale for $200 each.  They are unframed.

Paper Collage – Cats

I created these paper collage pieces one winter when I couldn’t paint due to my small space living arrangement. I was able to work on them while sitting on the sofa in my living room. I love them because they incorporate a number of devices I’ve used in my oil paintings – sea shells, playing cards, skeleton keys and coins – as well as utilizing my fashion design background with the sewing craft.

They are cats, although you could argue they look like dogs, too, and that’s fine. I used Strathmore paper and metallic embroidery thread.

I’m selling them for $75 each (unframed).
